Woman (UK) - - Cover Story -

De­spite ev­ery­thing, Lisa, who re­fuses to re­move her wed­ding ring, is strug­gling to come to terms with the fact their 11-year mar­riage is over.

A source close to Lisa ex­clu­sively told Woman, ‘She isn’t ready to take her ring off – in her eyes that would mean ad­mit­ting her mar­riage is over for good – and she’s just not there yet.’

In fact, Lisa has told close pals she thinks Ant will come run­ning back to her and the pair will get back to­gether. ‘She thinks the fact he’s now hit rock bot­tom will push him back to her and that he wasn’t think­ing straight when he filed for di­vorce. Lisa thinks that, deep down, he wants her back and once he’s out of re­hab, they can rekin­dle.’

A pic­ture of her, Ant and their dog still sits on her Twit­ter page. ‘Lisa re­ally thinks she could have helped to save him…’ the friend says. ‘But those close to Ant in­sist their strug­gling mar­riage was only mak­ing his prob­lems worse.’

The pair were to­gether for 24 years be­fore Ant called time on their mar­riage and, de­spite his demons, which caused ‘mood swings and de­pres­sion’ af­ter a botched knee op, she stood by him. The in­sider adds, ‘It was clear there were prob­lems that were get­ting her down, but she didn’t want to give up on Ant’ While Ant was said to be ‘re-eval­u­at­ing’ their mar­riage once he re­turned home from re­hab in 2017, Lisa was ‘de­ter­mined’ to save it. A tweet liked by her re­it­er­ates these feel­ings: You will come through the dark­ness and be brighter and stronger than you went in… You've done ab­so­lutely noth­ing wrong apart from be a lov­ing wife. Our in­sider says, ‘Lisa can’t help but cling to happy mem­o­ries and the dream that some­how things could be dif­fer­ent.’
